QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I'm 30 weeks pregnant and my baby isn't moving that much during the day.

Do you have any tips?

ANSWER

Be grateful that your child has rest periods. If you are lucky, it will still have them once it is born!

Seriously, just make sure that you eat a little something every two hours when you are awake, but you may just have a mellow child, or one that already has its days and nights mixed up :-).
